Huber had rediscovered her grandfather, a specter she’d only known in family stories and second-hand accounts. She’d cemented facts when she could cement them, and kept her pride and her imagination on a tight leash as she speculated between the gaps. She’d thrown open her family’s closet to examine the skeletons under hot lights and found beneath the dust, and shadows, and decades, a sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter picture of the life that her Grandpa Buschman might have lived.
